My first card is created with a fun stamp set called Born To Be Mild. The stamp set includes both Holiday and non Holiday stamp options. My card features the some the holiday elements and sentiment included in the set. I colored with Copic Markers and the die cut the images with the Born to be Mild Dies


I die cut the front panel with the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets from Sugar Cube Cardstock.

Simon Says STAMPtember with Pretty Pink Posh!



Hi Everyone!! I am excited to share a new stamp set with you today created by Pretty Pink Posh for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember. The pretty Topiary Clear Stamp Set is a limited edition which means it will be gone completely when it’s sold out!

The stamp set has six trees in it, three outline stamps and three solid stamps. I stamped the three outline stamps in a brown ink and colored the trees with Copic Markers. The background is lightly blended with ink. 


I stamped one of the sentiments in the stamp set inside the sentiment frame included in the stamp set. I added an Espresso Jewels on each side of the sentiment. I framed the trees with the Scallop Frames Dies

You can find the limited edition Topiary Stamp Set HERE. Stop by the Simon Says Stamp Blog for more inspiration with the stamp set and a can to win a prize!

Thankful for You

Hi! It is starting to feel a little like fall here which makes me excited. Today I have a Fall inspired card created with products from Pretty Pink Posh.


Let's start with the background. I used the Autumn Leaves Stencil with a panel of Kraft Cardstock. I blended a variety of fall colors and then splatter on gold paint. I also distressed the edges of the card front and sponged on Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. 


I kept the rest of the card simple. I die cut the smaller die in the Scallop Circles Dies from gold foil and added a circle of vellum behind the scalloped circle. The pumpkin is die cut with the Small Stitched Foliage Dies and the sentiment from the Thankful For You Script Die

Thanks for stopping by!

My first card uses three new products that are designed to work together giving you so many creative options, the Gifted Background Stamp, the Gifted Cutting Plate, and the Gifted Stencil


First stamped the Gifted Background Stamp in Versamark Ink and embossed with TE Gold Embossing Powder. Next I laid the Gifted Stencil over the stamped image and used my TE Blender Brushes to add color to the presents! Such a quick and easy way to add color. The third step was to use the Gifted Cutting Plate to cut out each present. 


I added foam tape to the back of the individual gifts and stacked them up the card. The sentiment is from the new Simple Strips - Birthday Stamp Set




My next card features the Big Cake Stamp Set the Big Cake Die. I stamped in Oreo Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I used the new Confetti Toss Stencil to create the background.

Yay! It's Your Birthday

Hi! I am back today with a look at more of the new birthday products being released to celebrate Taylored Expressions 11th birthday. I have two cards to share that I think could work for either genders. I don't know about you but I never have enough cards in my stash that can be given to all the males in my family. You can find all the new products HERE.


My first card features the new Backstory - Birthday Background. I stamped the background on Sugar Cube Cardstock with Versamark Ink and embossed with TE White Embossing Powder. I grabbed my Potato Chip, Confetti Cake, Lime Zest, and Blueberry Inks and blended the rainbow effect with my TE Blender Brushes. 


 I die cut the Caps Lock - Yay Die twice, once from chipboard and once from Blue Raspberry Cardstock and layered the two layer together.  I like the dimension the two layers give. I used the Big Grumpy - Birthday Stamp Set and Dies to add the balloon and present. 


The sentiment is from the Simple Strips - Birthday Stamp Set and die cut with Simple Strip Die. 



My second card is created with the Party Pennants Background Stamp and the Birthday Basics Stamp Set. Using my Misti, I stamped the background twice, first with Oreo Ink and then with TE Clear Embossing Powder. The embossing just makes the background stand out a little bit more. 


I stamped the cake from the Birthday Basics Stamp Set in Versamark on Oreo Cardstock and embossed with TE White Embossing Powder. I framed the cake with the Stitched Square Stacklets and the Inside Scallop Square Stacklets. The sentiment is included in the Birthday Basics Stamp Set.

Happy 11th Birthday Taylored Expressions!

Welcome to the Taylored Expressions 11th Birthday Celebration! Today begins three day of projects created with the new birthday release! I first started creating cards about 12 years ago. I started out as a scrapbooker. I followed Taylor and remember when she released her first stamp set. I feel honored to be part the TE Team!! You can find all the new products HERE.


My first card features the Big Grumpy Birthday Stamp and Die Combo and the Big Grumpy - Birthday Stamp Set and the Big Grumpy Birthday Dies.   The stamped images are colored with Copic Markers and then die cut. I stamped one the sentiment from the Big Grumpy Birthday Stamp and Die Combo in Oreo Ink. 


In the background I stamped the new Party Pennants Background Stamp in Salt Water Taffy Ink on Salt Water Taffy Cardstock. I created the grass with the Build A Scene - Grassy Hills Die and Lime Zest Cardstock. 


Here is a look at the inside of the card where I finished off the sentiment and stamped a balloon. 



My second card is created with the new Big Cake Stamp Set and Big Cake Dies. I stamped the cake and candles in Versamark Ink and then embossed with TE White Embossing Powder. Then I used the TE Blender Brushes to add color to each layer of the cake with Potato Chip, Peaches n' Cream, and Guava Ink. 


The background is created by embossing Sugar Cube Cardstock with the Sprinkles Embossing Folder, blending on Potato Chip Ink, and then adding a panel of vellum to create the soft background. The card is framed with the largest die in Stitched Frame Stacklets 1. 


I added three of the sentiments from the new Simple Strips - Birthday Stamp Set, stamping with Versamrk Ink on Guava Cardstock and embossing with white embossing powder. I used the Simple Strips Die to cut the sentiments. The stamp set has so many great sentiments

TE Blender Brushes Pre Order!!!

Taylored Expressions has a new website! The pre-orders for the blender brushes are coming next week! Watch the Taylored Expressions blog and the emails for more information.



I used the TE Blender Brushes in combination with the Here Comes the Sun Stencil to created the background. 



I also used the Blender Brushes to add color to the mermaid tales and backed the tales with TE Gold Foil using the Be A Mermaid Dies. The sentiment is included in the Be A Mermaid Stamp Set. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and embossed with TE Gold Embossing Powder. I added drops of Nuvo Clear Crystal Drops behind each tail. 


At the bottom of the ocean I used the Build A Scene - Underwater Dies to add the coral, shells, and plants. I can't decide if I want to give the card to someone or just keep it in my studio!
